For years, the iconic jewelry house has cultivated the finest levels of craftsmanship, employing the most meticulous goldsmithing techniques. While keeping the Italian Renaissance at the core of their design aesthetics, Andrea and Lucrezia lead the house further into the 21st century as they draw inspiration from a new creative wellspring. In this case, the jewels being unveiled reflect a refreshed approach as they express their deepest emotions related to some of the most famous masters of the impressionist and post-impressionist movements.
Entitled Timeless Blue, the evening will take place in the brand's new five-story flagship townhouse at 714 Madison Avenue and will support the restoration foundation, Save Venice. Encapsulated by a glowing blue hue influenced by Buccellati's original stylistic identity dating back to its founder Mario Buccellati, guests will explore the timeless tradition and craftsmanship of the brand's 100-year-old history. Attendees will be encouraged to discover the multiple levels of the new boutique including a high jewelry lounge and a private Family Vault of vintage offerings, ending on the 4th floor gallery.
Since 1919, Buccellati family members have created every design coming out of the house, starting with Mario followed by Gianmaria, Andrea, and now the first female and youngest generation designer, Lucrezia Buccellati. Working alongside her tenured father Andrea, who leads the overall creative direction, the new jewels were designed by the father/daughter duo and mark the brand's evolution into a more contemporary style and design whilst maintaining the milestone tradition of workmanship techniques that have made the House revered around the world.
The evening will be hosted by the Buccellati family, David Wildenstein, Claudio Sposito, Kelly Rutherford and Save Venice members, Lauren Santo Domingo, Olivia Chantecaille, Alexandra Lind Rose, Indre Rockefeller, Beatrice Rossi-Landi, Matthew White, and Adelina Wong Ettelson.
